Any funny stories from your childhood/adulthood that you may want to share with the community?
Well, there was the time when we all had chores to do. It was winter and my job was to bring in the wood for the cook stove. We changed chores weekly. I was in the kitchen with my mother and I made a bet with my brother "Doc". I told him I had more brothers than he had and so he bet with me. I won and he had to carry in the wood for me for the week. My mother made sure he did them because she heard him make the bet with me.
Anything else that you may wish to add? I was raised with 7 sisters and 2 brothers. I had more but they never lived to old age. I mean they died within their first two years of age.
